Global Warming Expands Its Effect Across Millions of Additional Miles

The global warming climate crisis has exploded its effect across millions of miles… of space.

A recent report in The Sunday Times of London explains that the planet Mars has warmed by about the same amount over the same time period as has Earth.

Scientists from Nasa say that Mars has warmed by about 0.5C since the 1970s. This is similar to the warming experienced on Earth over approximately the same period.
Mars is also losing antarctic ice at a rapid pace.

The cause of the rapid increase in surface temperature on Mars is not known, although one of the Mars researchers
believes variations in radiation and temperature across the surface of the Red Planet are generating strong winds.
In a paper published in the journal Nature, she suggests that such winds can stir up giant dust storms, trapping heat and raising the planet’s temperature.

Sounds a little circular: more radiation and higher temperature cause winds which stir up storms which cause higher temperatures?

Meanwhile, rumors that Al Gore has bailed from his energy-glutton home on earth to take up residency on the Red Planet have been denied.

NASA remains confident that the Mars Rover, a solar/battery vehicle could not have produced sufficient carbon dioxide greenhouse gasses to have caused the changes.
